"A short, elegant, and important book in behalf of multilaterism in U.S. foreign policy. In a rejection of pure realism, Ruggie argues that the U.S.'s view of itself, in particular its idealistic view that it is a force for bettering the world, is a necessary component of sustained U.S. involvement in the world.... Highly recommended." — Choice

"Puts the years since the end of the cold war in their proper historical context. Understanding the policies, theories, and impulses that affected international relations during this period helps the reader acquire an enlightened perspective on the present and develop a vision for the future. Notwithstanding popular catchphrases, world affairs are never orderly in practice. Yet, with Ruggie's insight, we can at least bring some structure to how we perceive the world." — J. Robert Kerrey, U.S. Senator
